Quick Overview
At present, many known pathogens causing infections in humans both in the hospital and at the level of community are showing increasing resistance to various antibiotics including the Penicillins and Cephalosporins. Apart from increasing resistance, new organisms are emerging as pathogens, which were earlier considered as commensals or harmless microorganisms. Therefore, it is becoming more important to take adequate steps to prevent or control the infection rather than treating it after getting established. Infection control committee is playing an important role in many hospitals. Keeping in view of these changing trends and also taking into the consideration of experts’ constructive comments on the first edition of this book, it has been decided to revise the Textbook of Microbiology for Nursing Students by expanding its frontiers by including more information to the existing one. Accordingly, several topics have been expanded or introduced freshly.
